30 Days of Marvel, Day 3: Favorite Diva

Do you know how tough it is to find a picture of Emma Frost where she doesn't look blatantly over sexualized? It took me damn near an hour!

Emma Frost, or the White Queen as she is often referred as, is a telepath who can turn her body into diamond to help protect her. She is a constant flip-flopper of moral alignment, and is currently a member of the X-Men who live on Utopia under the command of Cyclops. She is actually Cyclops' lover right now, yet always feels like it isn't good enough because she is constantly being compared to Jean Grey, the mutant who controlled the Phoenix before she died stopping it.

It will be interesting to see where her character is going to go given the current main line story in the Marvel comic book universe is Avengers VS X-Men and focuses on the return to the Phoenix force to Earth. She does have a motherly aura about her, specifically when it comes to protecting fellow mutants, such as Hope Summers, who the Phoenix is currently en route to Earth to possess.
